Happy Mother’s Day!
I am so excited to be part of this blog hop on such a wonderful today!
Our theme this month is techniques. Quite a broad theme! I love it!
I combined a few things today creating this purrrfect card –
Ok, let’s see the card without paws!
Let’s start with the sentiment. I used two items here, a Stampin’ Write marker and two different stamps. I used Nine Lives for the ‘MEOW’ and the April 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit, Sentimental Rose, for the “Happy thers Day’.
Both stamps are photopolymer. I literally colored the letters I wanted to use and stamped them. Believe me, I attempted this a few times, but this was actually my first attempt! And, it was the best! I used a new punch, Timeless Label to punch it out. (Available June 4th.)
I also used the Simply Scored to score the stripe pattern on the front of the card before using the Stitched Be Mine Dies for the heart.
My next technique was this nifty double fold on the card –
Two sweet cats punched from the All My Love Designer Series Paper!
And, when that is opened –
So cute, right??
The outside is a regular card, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4. The inner card I trimmed 1/4″ off of the two sides.
I just love this!
And, of course, you just have to see who inspired this meow-velous card –
Luna, my first fur baby. She looks sooo happy to be a part of this!
And, Cranston, aka, Mr. C that is a total ham!
I hope you enjoyed this sweet card for Meowther’s Day! Please leave me a comment before heading to the next talented designer on our blog hop.
